Strathmore University is collaborating with the Kuehne Foundation to support medical, humanitarian, charitable, and cultural projects through strengthening the supply chain and logistics capacity.
The Kuehne Foundation is a Swiss-based charity established by the Kuehne family in 1976. It is associated with Kuehne + Nagel, one of the world’s leading logistics service providers.
The Foundation, in partnership with the German Logistics Association (BVL) and the German Foreign Trade & Logistics Academy (DAV), seeks to strengthen logistics and supply chain management capacity. This is implemented through the Kuehne Logistics University (KLU) in Germany, as well as partnerships with other leading global institutions, including Strathmore University.
Besides training, the Foundation is also involved in humanitarian logistics under its HELP affiliate. It is under these partnerships that Strathmore University is rolling out a Health Supply Chain Internship that includes a Hackathon Training Programme.
The aim is to enable students undertaking the Logistics and Supply Chain Management (LSCM) and MBA in Healthcare Management courses to work closely with the other Kuehne partners.
